Caius, a pioneer naturalist as well as a physician, corresponded with Conrad Gessner, with whom he had made friends while returning from Padua. Caius wrote this study of British dogs to send to Gessner as a contribution (not used) to Gessner's Historiae animalium, and also sent Gessner drawings of dogs, which were printed in later editions of Gessner's work.
